Virtual Peer Support

With the Virtual Peer Group, physicians who may not have been able to attend a Peer Group at EmPRO, can now experience the support and understanding from colleagues as well as the many benefits of the ‘mini-lectures’ from our expert mindfulness leader.

THE VIRTUAL GROUP IS

  • Led by a physician expert in mindful practice, meditation, and group process.
  • With state of the art technology, you can ‘attend’ a virtual peer support group, without ever leaving the comfort and convenience of your home or office.
  • You can choose to participate a lot, a little, or appreciate the benefit from tuning in and listening. All participants have the choice to be on video or not. With video engaged, you will see and hear the leader.
  • To review our upcoming virtual groups, visit our events page.
  • To protect your confidentiality, no notes are maintained. Giving your name to the virtual group is voluntary.
  • Physicians have expressed feeling that participating virtually is a convenient and helpful experience. They also have commented on the ability to be more candid with the virtual experience.
